Analyze individual user actions
User action detail pages provide quick access to all relevant user-action data, giving you all the information you need to understand what contributes to the performance of each of your user actions.
To access user action detail pages
- In the Dynatrace menu, go to Web.
- Select an application.
- Scroll down to the Top user actions section, and click View full details.
- Select an action listed under Key user actions or Top 100 user actions.
Depending on which user action you want to analyze, you can alternatively directly select in the Top user actions section one of the actions shown there.
Once on a user action detail page, click areas of the infographic at the top of the page to navigate to the corresponding section on the page related to each summary metric, or type a string into the Filter user types field to view real-user or synthetic-monitoring specific data.
In the Performance section, you can view the impact of user activity on performance, check out the various performance contributors and see the distribution for your selected performance metric.
Contributors breakdown chart and waterfall analysis
When it comes to analyzing user actions, one of the main questions to address is on which tier is the most response time consumed? Was more time spent on the frontend (i.e., mainly in the browser), the network, or the server? The Contributor breakdown chart gives you a quick overview of time spent on the frontend, the network, and the server. For complete waterfall analysis of individual user actions, click the View analysis in waterfall chart button to see which resources impact the action duration.
Dynatrace relies on Apdex ratings to calculate user satisfaction. By selecting Apdex rating, you can view the user satisfaction within the specified time frame for the specific user action.
The Loaded resources section provides an overview of downloaded resource categories and their impact on the action duration.

This section lists the user action properties that you've defined for the specific user action. By clicking one property, you can view the data that have been captured via this property.
The Problems section indicates problems that have been automatically detected by Davis, i.e. the Dynatrace AI-driven root-causation engine. Just click on a problem to learn further details.
This section includes a breakdown of Browsers, Users, and Geolocations and shows metrics for these dimensions for the specific user action.
